In this chapter, you’ll learn the foundations of A/B testing. You’ll explore clear steps and use cases, learn the reasons and value of designing and running A/B tests, and discover the most commonly used metrics design and estimation frameworks.
In Chapter 2, you’ll cover the experiment design process. Starting with learning how to formulate strong A/B testing hypotheses, you’ll also cover statistical concepts such as power, error rates, and minimum detectable effects. You’ll finish the chapter by learning to estimate the appropriate sample size needed to yield conclusive results and tackle scenarios with multiple comparisons.
Here, you’ll discover a concrete workflow for cleaning, preprocessing, and exploring AB testing data, as well as learn the necessary sanity checks we need to follow to ensure valid results. You’ll explore a detailed explanation and example of analyzing difference in proportions A/B tests.
In the final chapter, you’ll develop frameworks for analyzing differences in means and leveraging non-parametric tests when several assumptions aren't met. You’ll also learn how to apply the Delta method when analyzing ratio metrics and discover the best practices and some advanced topics to continue the A/B testing mastery journey.
